Is “Social Justice” Justice?

Those who peddle “Social Justice” never will admit that what they really peddle and encourage is societal envy and covetousness. These peddlers convince themselves that those who “have” must have gotten what they “have” unfairly; some injustice after all is implied. So “social justice” in their minds is simply to make what has been ill-gotten – right or what they would deem “justice”.

Unless someone has what they have illegally or unjustly why should the Government be empowered to take from one and give to another; is that really justice?  No, – “Social Justice” is simply envy cloaked in the suit of Marxist redistributive ideology and is not about justice at all. Faithful Christians should reject such an ideology because it encourages the breaking the 10th commandment: You shall not covet. A second reason faithful Christians should reject this ideology is because social covetousness encourages those who have been influenced by it to use the arm of the Government (via their vote) to take from one and give to another (in the name of justice)  which is theft and a breaking of the 8th commandment: You shall not steal.

Therefore Social Justice policies however good intentioned they might be are not really about “justice” at all; they are all smoke and mirrors and actually are about envy and covetousness.

Envy and covetousness though must have the appearance of ethics and justice so that those who peddle it can feel good about what they peddle whether they realize it or not.

Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis

Marxism is alive and well in the good old USA

This is a must read article by James Simpson

It reminds me of a scary little Marxist pamphlet I found some time ago titled:

“Brain Washing: A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics” Psychopolitics: the art and science of asserting and maintaining dominion over the thoughts and loyalties of individuals, officers, bureaus, and masses, and the effecting of the conquest of enemy nations through “mental healing”.

If you cant read the entire pamphlet make sure to read Chapter 14 “The Smashing of Religious Groups” (it’s a very short chapter) just to see how successful Marxist have been in our country, its very telling. Here is a quote from it:

“We must be like the vine upon the tree. We use the tree to climb and then, strangling it, grow into power on the nourishment of its flesh”.

Saviors of the World…

Jesus Christ sacrificed himself to save the world – others have sacrificed others in order to save it…

Our world is full of ideological  “isms”. Marxism, Nazism, Feminism (abortion), Environmentalism (see my post below) etc. What many of these “isms” have in common is that they see themselves as “saviors” who are either fighting some sort of injustice or saving us from some impending disaster.

People who are driven by these ideological “isms” are willing to sacrifice whatever is necessary to bring about the needed salvation or utopia…

Sacrificing himself for the sake of an idea, he does not hesitate to sacrifice other people for it. Among his contemporaries he sees either merely the victims of the world’s evil he dreams of eradicating or the perpetrators of that evil . . . This feeling of hatred for the enemies of the people forms the concrete and active psychological foundation of his life. Thus the great love of mankind of the future gives birth to a great hatred for people; the passion for organizing an earthly paradise becomes a passion for destruction.
